The mada streets were clogged on Saturday and Sunday evenings with many religious and cultural events in this area. Tourists buses bringing in pilgrims from all over – there were three Karnataka state corporation buses parked here – and traffic headed for the prodosham on the weekend and to a string of concerts at sabha halls here, North and East Mada Streets were jam packed.
There was no sign of Traffic Police here and only parking bay staff did a bit to manage this flow.
Since this is the peak time for the December Season concerts and the rush increases on the weekend, there is chaos on these roads. Clearly, there is a case for making the mada streets ‘one way’.
